Let’s keep the intro short for this one. My 2020 reading list!
- Get Your Sh*t Together by Sarah Knight: Honestly, I thought this was a great one to kick off the new year.
- The Dark Half by Stephen King: A little horror recommendation by a family member. I watch a lot of horror movies, but I haven’t read any books yet!
- People You May Know by Topher Kearby: One of my favorite writers.
- Hollow City by Ransom Riggs: I started this series last summer, but for some reason, I didn’t continue…
- Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs: The next book in that series. I know there are two more after this, but I’m going to cut it to the second and third.
- An Abundance of Katherines by John Green: The only John Green book I haven’t read yet.
- Water for Elephants by Sarah Gruen: A gift from a family member! I’m super excited.
- This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald: Fitzgerald just speaks for himself, doesn’t he?
- The Collective by Don Lee: Racism is very much still an issue, and it’s important to read books where the characters don’t look like us and experience different things from us.
- The Deepest Roots by Miranda Asebedo: This one was a signed copy that was sent to me!
- Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli: I’ve been meaning to get around to it ever since Simon vs. The Homosapien Agenda.
- Olive, Again by Elizabeth Strout: Been seeing this one all over my Instagram feed.
- The Day is Ready for You by Alison Malee: It’s so important, as a poet, to keep reading other poetry and supporting other authors like myself!
- We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: I love Adichie’s writings, and she is just so freaking cool. Also, she wears the most wicked Nigerian fashion. So much love for this woman.
- You Are A Bad*** by Jen Sincero: What is it with these profanity-titled self-help books? I want to understand the hype.
- The Girl With All the Gifts by M. R. Carey: I’ll be honest, the title just sounds cool.
- Call Me by Your Name by André Aciman: A friend of mine was really into this one.
- Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg: Always good to read some queer fiction.
- My Sister’s Grave by Robert Dugoni: I was made aware of this one through a book talk. Let’s give it a shot!
- The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt: Again, another one where the title is cool. Maybe afterward, I’ll watch the movie, but probably not.
- All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr: I’m not one for historical books, but I simply can’t not read this one, not with all the raving reviews.
- Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll: Alice in Wonderland is MY FAVORITE FANTASY WORLD. WHY HAVE I NOT READ THIS YET? AGH!
- The Boys Who Woke Up Early by A.D. Hopkins: This is a very old and powerful story that I believe needs to be in my mind.
- Catcher by Kalyn Nicholson: My favorite YouTuber! I cannot wait to meet the characters and see what it’s all about.
- The College Vegan Cookbook: 145 Affordable, Healthy & Delicious Plant-Based Recipes by Heather Nichols: This one’s obvious, but I’m going vegan in college, so I need some ideas.
- Whatever my English class reading is! Last semester, it was The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien.
There you have it! At this rate, I’ll need to read one book every two weeks. For updates, be sure to keep up with my Instagram!
